The Google Wind Map is a great way to watch what the weather is up to without listening to the weather network.

This easy-to-procrastinate-on website shows wind patterns hovering over the various cities of The United States of America at every minute. The site also explains how wind patterns are an ancient source of energy, being the main reason explorers could travel to find the beginnings of current civilization.

The maps are interesting to look at, as they stir curiosity of nature's impact on the world through a moving pictographic image.

The Google Wind Map allows viewers to get a sense of what the weather patterns are like in the US in an animated and entertaining way.
